There has been an outburst of pride from all those in Ireland who helped Eoin Morgan on his path to becoming a World Cup-winning captain.
The Dubliner joined the exclusive club by leading England to their first-ever Cricket World Cup in a dramatic tie-breaking 'super over' on Sunday.
Morgan, aged 32, represented Ireland at the 2007 World Cup, before switching allegiances to England in pursuit of Test cricket. Ireland wasn't granted Test status until 2017.
Here's the best of the online reaction:
There were wild celebrations in Rush...
For any media organisations hoping to contact us between now and tomorrow morning.

Brexit jokes, naturally...
Well done to Eoin Morgan and the English cricket team. God, they’ll miss him post-brexit, won’t they?— chris o'dowd (@BigBoyler) July 14, 2019
be cool if Eoin Morgan chose this as the moment to make a political point and put all of the England bowlers in the backstop— David O'Doherty (@phlaimeaux) July 14, 2019

Would love Eoin Morgan to start off his speech with, “Tá an athais orm, and corn seo a ghlacadh ar son muintir na h-Éireann”!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣— luke fitzgerald (@lukefitz11) July 14, 2019
And, we’ll see you all in Coppers tonight....😉 https://t.co/NL1k2Kl9g9— luke fitzgerald (@lukefitz11) July 14, 2019

Lots of congratulations...
An Irishman and Dub who gathered footballs at training in Santry Ave during our All Ireland year '95 now captains England to cricket World Cup. Who'd have guessed what would happen nearly 30yrs later. Well done @Eoin16— Paul Clarke (@ClarkePaul1995) July 14, 2019
Very proud of Eoin Morgan. They'll pass the cup down the line. At some point - four or five - an actual English person might get their hands on it. Congrats England! https://t.co/6vSSCddLO9— Barry Glendenning (@bglendenning) July 14, 2019
